I have a female Mallard duck, who just lost her partner (who was also female) to a hawk. He attacked them in their pool yesterday, and when I discovered them, the other female (Quackers) was dead in the water, and Lucky was still in the pool with her very upset. The Hawk was beside the pool all wet. I carried Lucky into the cage, she was very cold and was not moving much. I didn't know how badly she was hurt or if she would make it through the night, but she did. Today she seems unhurt physically, but is very frightened (naturally) and lonely. She's spent most of the day hiding in the dog house, inside the cage. I've had them for 2 years now. I'm thinking of getting a couple more ducks so she wouldn't be all alone, but I don't know how she would welcome them. Is it possible she might "mother" baby ducklings... or would she be hostile toward them? Has anyone here had to deal with this? I would like some suggestions.
